Kidnapping: FG To Rehabilitate Four Rescued Abuja Girls
THE Federal Government is committed to providing comprehensive rehabilitation for the four girls rescued from the Al-Kadriyar family after enduring two weeks in the kidnappers’ den.
Mrs Uju Kennedy-Ohanenye, Minister of Women Affairs, made this known on Monday after a visit to the rescued girls at a facility where they are undergoing medical treatment.
“The ministry will closely monitor their recovery and will be there for them immediately they leave this facility and commence full rehabilitation, which includes engagement of a psychologist.
“This is due to the trauma they must have been through during the period in the kidnappers’ custody,” she said.
She solicited that the girls be moved from their present school to another safer environment, while one of them should undergo her National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, scheme, at the ministry.
While commending the army, the police and other security agencies for the collaboration in the release of the girls, she expressed concern over incessant cases of kidnapping.
“President Bola Tinubu is deeply worried about this trend of kidnapping and is working assiduously towards addressing the situation.
“After this visit, I will update the President and the First Lady about the condition of these girls,” she added.
